I shop a lot at consignment/thrift stores for my family.  I am curious if anyone has ideas of how to strip the heavy detergents from the clothes besides washing them a dozen times.  My family is really chemically sensitive and we use natural detergents. 

 

Vinegar?

Baking soda in the wash, vinegar in place of liquid softener.  I also am a huge fan of Biokleen Bac-out.  And then hang it all in the sun to dry.

Thank you for the advice.  We use Bio-keen detergent, will look for the Bac-out.  Yey!  I knew there was something we could do!
